We just got back from seeing the new Harry Potter. It is fantastic! By far the best of the three. It tells the story well without including a lot of unnecessary substories from the book. The cinematography is what really sets it apart though. It is much darker than the earlier movies both thematically and visually and everyone seems so much more real. The kids wear regular clothes and the magic isn't as "gee whiz", it is more just part of the world.
Very well done.
